I don't "have to" quit overseas traveling, it's my choice - I've seen (almost) all of the foreign places that I had on my younger days "wanna go to" list (the Greek Islands remain unseen and they're gonna remain that way..) - everything I want to see is right here - in the good old US of A (well, everything West of the Mississippi anyway..).....Bill

Made 3 trips overseas to France, but in the last 2.5 yrs with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control as a quality engr, I accumulated 499,976 miles according to Delta and never went farther west than Denver. Most of it from the Mississippi River east. 8 -10 different planes a week just gets old along with 2-4 different motels, 2-4 different rental cars, etc., 15-20 restaurant meals. Not fun after a while. Heart attack on a plane in St. Louis in Nov05 and hung it up 31Jul06.

Not very smart, but sure got tired of the grind. Met some wonderful, very smart people, but after 10 yrs of traveling every week and the last 2.5 yrs...
